Cutthroat Streams.

Most anglers associate the NF Coeur d'Alene and St. Joe Rivers as summer time dry fly fisheries... which they certainly are. However, there are some other great "shoulder" seasons that are awesome times to be out on these fisheries as well.

When fishing the "pre-runoff" time of the year you can definitely have some dry fly fishing, but a lot of the best fishing will be done with streamers and nymphs. In this YouTube video I discuss some basic set-ups that we use, as well as what general types of patterns to fish.

If you have questions on flies or gear please let us know below in the comments area!

Thanks for watching!
